Potential energy at max height = (initial kinetic energy)

m g h = (1/2) m V^2

Cancel the m's and solve for V

ok thanks that is what i thought it might be but i just wanted to make sure. I also have another problem that i am hoping that you could help me with. A car requires 30 horsepower to move at a constant 20m/s what is the amount of friction that is needed to overcome?
